College rankings can tell us how many students are graduating on time, but not why some fall short of that goal. Stony Brook University President Stanley says if students, families and counselors consider the future when evaluating colleges, students have a greater chance to succeed. bit.ly/2qGN74C #highered #Collegerankings

Join Dr. David Taylor in Cuba during the winter session in EHM 316!
Students looking to visit Cuba should check out EHM 316: Cuba & Sustainability at the Stony Brook University Sustainability Studies Program at the School of Mar...ine and Atmospheric Sciences. Seats are still available!
Cuba represents a wonderful case study for the value of using the natural history, arts, media and cultural traditions as a means of encouraging citizens to adopt environmentally sustainable practices. Since the 1990s, Cuba has been in the unique situation of being forced to address sustainable agricultural and environmental practices. Given the pressure to increase tourism to keep money flowing into Cuba, the need to reform industrial farming practices, and the need to address failing infrastructure after the end of Soviet assistance (called the Special Period), Cuba has made a number of dramatic decisions to move toward sustainability.
As governments around the world have found, laws and incentives may do a lot to encourage changes in daily choices toward sustainability, long-term change must use existing arts to make sustainability a part of culture. Working with the University of Havana Geography Department, as well as Artes Escenicas Cubanas (Performing Arts organization) and Cuban writers about the environment, the class will explore the complexities of sustainability with an emphasis on the role of humanities in a global context with hands-on experience.
Highlights include field trips to the following sites:
The Bay of Pigs
The Cienaga de Zapata
Rio Almendares (Havana's primary water source)
Vinales and Pinar del Rio
Come help out relief efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico and other disaster areas, via open-source mapping. All you need is your laptop and a free moment next Wednesday. Following recent disasters such as the hurricane that struck Puerto Rico, people around the world are using the OpenStreetMap platform to give their time to hurricane relief efforts. The Red Cross in Puerto Rico has set up digital mapping tasks through which those on college campuses and elsewhere can pitch... in with ongoing relief efforts. During the mapathon, we will teach people the mapping work that needs doing, then we will map together.
No mapping experience necessary. No knowledge of local terrain is necessary. Come any time during 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Please bring your laptop!
